brought by the bush administration, now the first from the obama administration, that tests the role that federal judges play with detainees, mostly who are now being housed at guantanamo bay naval base, which is in cuba, but obviously part of u.s. jurisdiction. as we have gone along, the supreme court has found a role for judges in these disputes and has essentially rejected a lot of the bush administration arguments. most recently, in 2008, the supreme court ruled 5-4 at guantanamo detainees could question the constitutionality of their cases. the new one that is now up, it will test the potency of that 2008 ruling in the context of, a federal judges can say we would hear the case and we think we have a remedy, what can they do? in this case the question is, can federal judge's order the administration to free a detainee into the net states? this case involves the main one that i will talk about, 13 chinese uighurs who are moslems who were picked up after september 11, and afghanistan. they had fled persecution in their home country and were living in the mountains of afghanistan,

that no matter what the states' laws are, it's still a federal crime to use it or to distribute it. the obama justice department is saying it simply won't enforce those federal laws as long as you're legal in your state. i think that's kind of the summation of where you are. and i know that you had limited resources. so i understand. did you personally approve the issuance of this new policy? >> i did. >> do you agree that this is a dramatic break from past administration policies? >> it's certainly a break. i'll let other people decide whether it's dramatic. >> it's a break. cancel the word "dramatic." >> it's certainly a break. but it seems to me it's a logical break given, as you indicated, the limited resources that we have. the use of marijuana in the way that these state laws prescribes, which is for medical purposes. but what that directive from the deputy attorney general, i guess, on october 19th indicated was that we are not blind. and to the extent that people are trying to use these state marijuana laws to do things that are not consistent with state law, that are not being used f
